Implementation Workshops - Virtual
This year's Workshop season is almost over! Dates for the 2022-23 Season will be released soon!
Join us for our monthly 2021-22 Implementation Workshops.
ALL educators are welcome!
Neural Ed champions will be facilitating these workshops, connecting neuroscience to teaching and learning in ways that will be applicable to your everyday practice as a neural educator.
"This class provides the why and the how of making changes in both the learning and behavior systems that need to be changed. I am so excited and hopeful for those changes, and grateful that I can be part of making those changes.”
Kate Larocque, 5th Grade teacher - Bellingham, WA
Each month we will explore a relevant and timely topic through presentations, as well as, intentional collaboration on current pedagogical practices participants are utilizing. The goal of each Implementation Workshop is to increase our application of neuroscience in teaching and learning by strengthening our neural lens and applying our adaptive expertise. By participating you will:
I appreciate learning about the brain in a way that a) makes sense to me as someone with little science language, b) applies so immediately to my life and my family, and c) allows me to take a new lens back to my school and my teachers.

Pandemic Research that educators need to know
Dr. Kieran O'Mahony will introduce latest neuroscience findings that he aligns specifically with the learning space. As part of our program to connect neuroscience with teaching and learning, he will describe and make visible new research from the field that is applicable to your everyday practice as a neural educator. New research will be highlighted that implicates the learning brain in areas of Sleep, Mindfulness, Episodic Memory, Deafness and the Phonological loop, as well as a couple other little nuggets to bring with you to your students.
Greenhousing with UDL:
Neural-variability is present in every learning space, and actually describes every group of learners. In this workshop we will explore the many ways Neural Education and Universal Design for Learning support ALL learners to reach their full potential. Join us as we Co-create and Collaborate to implement neural education practices into our learning spaces.
